Shots were fired outside the bar. John Bass, 24, made it inside the bar with a gunshot wound. He later died.
Police say no one is in custody, and they’re working possible leads.
The bar was still welcoming customers on Friday.
NewsChannel 13 asked Lieutenant Ryan Macherone with Schenectady Police if this shooting was gang related. He says he doesn’t believe so, but that all possibilities are being looked at.
We went inside the bar to try and talk to the owner. He said he has nothing to say, and he was not there when the shooting happened.
